Hi Mark,

The patch was done against trunk r25080. I use it with MPEG-PS file
encoded by an hauppauge pvr-350, one pvr-500, ffmpeg-0.5_p20373
(SVN-r20373) on gentoo.

witch internet navigator did you try on, did you teste on a remote
computer or on the server ?
can you check if the mythweb.pl and ffmpeg process is working when you get
the spining weel. Can you also check in your apache log file if get any

I don't have a h.264 encoder for the moment, could you send me a small
sample of your recording file ?
